Will Alicia Keys Do The ‘Un-Thinkable’ In Her Next Video?

I have a confession to make: I freaking love Alicia Keys' song "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)." This was the sleeper on her last release, The Element of Freedom, which I never really got into until I started hearing this song randomly on the radio. Clearly I'm not alone in my affinity for this joint because it's steadily climbing up the charts and now a video has been shot for the song as seen in the teaser clip below. Looks like Alicia will be going back in time and tackling race relations in some way here. Me being the armchair music video director than I am, I had a totally different video already thought out in my head--complete with Alicia caught in a love triangle, hey, it wouldn't be a stretch--but I'll wait to see how what she's done plays out as it relates to the song. With this clip's impending release, I guess it's safe to say that the video for "Put It In A Love Song" has been put on the back burner indefinitely.

  1. i've been loving this song, as well. It's been said that Alicia will "delay releasing her duet with Beyoncé to instead push "Un-Thinkable" with him — on the heels of the news that Drake's debut album has been delayed.

  2. This is by far the best song on the CD. I'm glad she chose this instead of that other joint (too terrible to mention by name)!

  3. Maaaan I thought I was the only one!! I'm seriously diggin this song. This song reminds me of the fact that I used to love Alicia Keys... hmmm

  4. I am so excited to see this video. Obviously I love this song but I think this video will make me love it even more because whoever thought of the plot added a whole new twist on what the song can be percieved to be about. It just goes to show you that there are songs so great that you can hear them & have different perspectives on what they're about (& not necessarily be wrong with either presumption).

  5. i'm definitely lovin' her vocals & the message .. can't wait for the video!! i've always been a fan!! artist do have ups & down in the progression of their career, but i'm happy to say i've always believed in her talent. lately people have bashed her yet now they're filing in beside her while she's climbing ?? ... just like the people who recently became huge Lena Horne fans IRONICALLY right after her passing?? classless and egregious.

  6. Definitely the best cut on the album. I'd take a guess at the storyline...have a feeling I might be right but we'll see when it premieres. She is beautiful. Love her 🙂

  7. alright... see, i was completely disappointed with her album until a buddy of mine told me about "unthinkable" (thanks reggie!!). i'm still completely disappointed with the album, but this song is the reason why i haven't even thought about writing off alicia. ...looks like the video's gonna be cool; it's going to reflect my relationship in a way...

  8. As a fan of Miss Keys, I must say I was also disappointed with her most recent Cd, BUT this little nugget right here made me proud of her. I've been killing this one since her CD came out. Glad she's making a vid for it.
